Follow-up Ultrasound

Shelli called mommy today to let her know, as the ultrasound tech had warned us yesterday, that her placenta is not "seperating" from her cervix as it needs to be. Mommy will have to have another ultrasound at 32 weeks to see if there is any improvement. The placenta needs to be at least 2cm from the cervix and it is currently only 1cm. The placenta is not covering the cervix, which would be worse (known as placenta praevia), however, it is not as far as it should be. Shelli thinks everything will be OK, that most of the time the placenta corrects itself, however, there is a chance it could not improve. If it doesn't improve by the time mommy goes into labor, the only solution is to have a c-section. The risk is bleeding (haemorrhage) during labor/delivery. Please pray this fixes itself!!!

Mommy doesn't have a date for this ultrasound yet, or her next appointment, so stay tuned.
